Quran vs The Bible for the Oath Belt
“Freedom of Religeon” takes some funny forms in this country…
“”An oath on the Quran is not a lawful oath under our law,” Guilford Senior Resident Superior Court Judge W. Douglas Albright said earlier in the week.”
This all started when the Greensboro Islamic Center attempted to donate copies of the holy Muslim book and the Guilford Country judges sent them back.
Personally I don’t care if we’re swearing on a copy of the Yellow Pages. Sure, a holy book should help impress upon the witness how important what they’re doing is, but it’s the very process of that oath which binds you legally to what you’re saying. North Carolina even has a provision on the books already for people who don’t want to use the Bible! So how is this any different?
